Hi all!

Last summer, having had the slide extended for a week I was unable to bring it in - I subsequently did so
manually

I contacted Damon Customer support and they told me that on my 2002
Challenger 335 on a 21,500 Ford Chassis the problem could be

- a circuit breaker located on the firewall to the right of the battery
control centre (I never was able to find this relay)
- a fuse on the converter fuse panel (did not find this one either)
- a slow blow 20 amp fuse on the Power Gear control panel (this was the
problem)

I also talked to Power Gear who made the slide mechanism. They referred
me to their web site http://www.powergearus.com/ and their TIP sheet
#110. What they really meant to say was TIP sheet # 137, Trouble
Shooting the Slide Out Relay Control Control (P/N 14-1130) Electrical
System. This is a superb document which walks one step by step through
a trouble shooting process which will lead you to the 'bad' component.
It took me about 15 minutes to identify the slow blow fuse as the bad
component. It took me a further three hours of walking through the
yellow pages to find a replacement fuse - I found one at a large
appliance parts store (Radio Shack carried nothing above 15 amps). I
now carry a couple of spares

Hope this helps others who might have a similar problem

Preston

The circuit breaker on the right side (as you look at it) of the Battery Control Center is not a "normal" appearing circuit breaker

If you look at the leads coming out of the BCC you will find three heavy wires that are labled, One says Generator on the label (At least on mine) and this is the house lead, follow that wire over to the right and it hits a black box, perhaps 2 or 3 inches square. Read the label on this box

It is the circuit breaker

Thanks John-D!

I will have a look for that box. These exchanges are what this forum is all about
